Neil:

 

They definitely have to test on unfirewalled computers. There are
hundreds of ways to configure firewalls, so for consistency they need to
test without a firewall.

 

Cheers,

Randy

They ran all of their tests off of three real DonkeyServers. This makes
it apparent that they are either not following the proposed methodology
or they haven't updated their server.met files from the site we
provided. We should be able to pinpoint the problem if they provide us
with their server.met files again.

 

Also, their Kad Network status says "Firewalled." According to Ty, this
doesn't affect our eMule protection currently, but may in the future.
Also, our protection on other networks will definitely be affected if
their firewall isn't configured properly for the Kad network.

 

 

Number of Tests per Server

 

DonkeyServer No2: 2 tests

DonkeyServer No3: 7 tests

DonkeyServer No5: 1 test

Here are the server details for the eMule tests EMI ran today.

 

Daniel also mentioned that there have been some issues with Soulseek
today. They may have tested it already but if they haven't I'm guessing
the earliest they will is at 1am Monday morning PST. That said, they
may not test it at all for next week's result and focus on some of the
other networks - it's hard to see specific patterns in their testing at
the moment, but they seem to be consistently testing eMule and
supplementing the other networks. Seeing as the recently focused on
Soulseek and MP2P - I'm guessing that they'll now move back to Ares and
WinMx (maybe Gnutella too).

 

Cheers,

Neil

Hi all,

 

Spoke to Steff today and he's agreed to send us server names and IP
addresses for all of their eMule tests moving fwd.

 

I also pointed out that Soulseek protection been ramped up.

 

Cheers,

Neil

Thanks very much!

 

It was only 5 out 5 tests on Soulseek.

 

According to the testing methodology we agreed to I can see at least 4
questionable fails on eMule. I'll also talk to Steff about getting
server details and get back to you asap.

 

Cheers,

Neil

Hi Neil,

 

We've been doing internal tests on the EMI projects you requested.
We'll begin sending you weekly reports on our results. I'll send a
separate email detailing them.

 

For this week's results, I'll go through each network they tested below:

 

eMule: 13 fails out of 30 attempts

 

The fails are surprising if they are indeed following the methodology we
proposed. We'll need to know their exact testing methodology to
determine why they are getting so many fails on eMule. If they are
indeed using the server.met we provided them, then our servers should be
at the top of the list (sorted by max users). It would help if they
could include which eMule server (name + IP) they tested on for each
test so that we could see if they are indeed following the proposed
methodology.

 

MP2P (Piolet): 5 fails out of 5 attempts

 

The Piolet fails are the result of this track not being marked as a
single in our system. This has been fixed.

 

Soulseek: 23 fails out of 50 attempts

 

We've been working with our development team to bring our Soulseek
protection up to an SLA level. Based on EMI's results, it looks like we
are close as the max # of pirated files they found for a test was 8.
They ran the Soulseek tests last Friday-we have since doubled our
Soulseek protection and our results should look much better.

 

 

Daniel Lee

FYI all - latest results from EMI. They tested on Soulseek, MP2P and
eDonkey this time around. Across all tests we're hitting around 50%.
Any feedback would be greatly appreciated.

 

Also, have we started any internal testing on EMI tracks yet - would be
good to see some results if there are any.

 

Cheers,

Neil

Dear all,

 

Please find attached the latest monitoring results - apologies for the
delay in getting these to you.

 

In general they were still very poor guys. Hanging around 50% passes
just isn't going to cut it. Updating the eDonkey2000 server.met files
has also seemingly made little difference to the eDonkey results
experienced. Please step up the protection level asap.

 

Any questions, please let me know as usual.

 

Many thanks & best regards,
